Place was closed but, apparently, you can’t get the help to go home…now THAT’S dedication
Leaning Tower of NILES?
Oh, sure….Niles….

Originally built as a water tower for filling a community pool – it’s 1/2 scale of the original and is 7.4 feet off plumb (half of Pisa’s 15 feet off – makes sense!). Now it is in front and part of the YMCA seen in the background. Not open to the public, but the surrounding piazza was created in 1996 and hosts concerts and other civic gatherings.
